An “enchanting soprano” (Opera News), Anne Slovin joins the University of Notre Dame faculty in fall 2023 as a studio voice and voice science professor. Slovin is currently completing her doctoral work at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, where she taught courses in voice pedagogy and the history of the American musical.

Slovin’s performing work ranges from early music to newly-composed opera, and encompasses multiple genres. She has most recently premiered the title role in Shulamit Ran and Charles Kondek’s Anne Frank at IU Opera Theater, where she also sang the role of Clara in Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s It’s a Wonderful Life in 2017. In 2015, Slovin originated the role of Mica Segal in The Property, a klezmer opera with a score by Wlad Marhulets and libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. A Gilbert & Sullivan enthusiast, Slovin has performed roles in The Sorcerer, The Yeomen of the Guard and Iolanthe at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in the UK, garnering prizes for her singing and overall performance from the festival adjudicator.

Slovin has distinguished herself as a solo concert performer with both classical recitals and multi-genre cabarets. Slovin is currently exploring Jewish art song repertoire, ranging from Yiddish art song of the early 20th century to contemporary interpretations of Ashkenazi and Sephardic folk music. She performs across the Midwest as a vocalist with the University of Chicago’s New Budapest Orpheum Society, and will be featured singing Darius Milhaud’s Poèmes Juifs on their upcoming album. As a cabaret singer, Slovin considers what it means to be a Jewish woman in her show Does a Goat Have a Soul? And Other Questions from Jewish Women of Stage and Screen. She is an alumna of the prestigious St. Louis Cabaret Conference, where she studied with legendary performers Marilyn Maye, Karen Mason, Jeff Harnar, and Faith Prince.

Slovin’s scholarly work focuses largely on topics in the area of voice studies, with an emphasis on musical theater and operetta. Her article “Beyond ‘Poor Wand’ring One’: Lesser-Known Gilbert & Sullivan for the Voice Studio” was published in the New York Singing Teachers’ Association (NYSTA) journal VoicePrints in fall 2022. Slovin’s research exploring the voice and career of Ethel Merman through the lens of trauma studies has been accepted for publication in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Music, Sound and Trauma. She will also present original research on nostalgic elements in the cinematic works of Molly Picon, Barbra Streisand and Rachel Bloom at the Great American Songbook Foundation’s annual StageStruck! conference. Slovin’s dissertation research zooms in on the intersection between voice pedagogy and disability studies as a way to make collegiate voice programs more inclusive.
